Get the make and model of the wireless card, and try the manufacturer's site for the drivers. You can also try or do a Google search on the card for Linux drivers and see if someone has posted them or posted where to find them in a forum. Keep in mind that the drivers are generally made for the card, not the particular machine, so if you find Linux drivers for the card, and it say it for a Dell or Gateway, go ahead and try it. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't, but if it does, then you're set.

I have an nc 6000 laptop dat show d hp logo wen i turn it on, but d screen goes blank after that, how d i fix this problem.

It seems to be a problem with your operating systems (Windows perhaps).
If you are not an experienced user, have it checked by someone else. The easies way
to check whether the computer is OK is to boot some Linux Operating System from the CD, or at least insert windows installation cd and try to start the installating procedure. You will see the option to repair the current installation.

When I turn my hp 6000 laptop on I get a black screen. recently had system board replaced due to recall. could it be the board again. My warranty has ran out and I am fed up to my eyeballs with this hp...

You can plug in an external monitor to see if your laptop screen is the problem, but many of the people who had the system board replaced for this problem, got the same problem on the replacement board as well, due to HP installing new, spare system boards that were not the improved version. I would go back to HP and try for more support, no matter what kind of pain it is, as they produced some real lemon laptops in the dv series.

My HP DV 6000 laptop - all of a sudden- doesn't recognize that it has a CD player/burner (I use Windows media to burn)??

usualy I do like this:
if I'm using a resource and this disapperar I restart PC if the resource start working is probabliy a operating system issue (virus,driver,issue, or what other in the S.O), if the resource still doesn't work it's possible a hardware problem.
It may be usefoul to controll BIOS or try a live linux distribution to be sure if is an hardware problem.

When i switch on my laptop,it goes switch off automatically without starting,it is v-6000 series of compaq

If it goes out immediately, maybe there's a problem with the power supply or power braker, if it's happening later on maybe there's a problem with the RAM or Motherboard, see your BIOS configuration.

How to change hp pavilion dv6000 from german to english

If you want to change Operating System from one language to another one, there is only one way. You need install English version of the Operating System. You can change some regional settings (time, writing languague to make programs recognise it), but nothing you can do about whole system. Please obtain an English version of Windows (or Linux if this is your operating system) and make a new installation on your computer. Of course back up all you datas before doing so
